Reach History
Hotel Amfiteatar

The rich history of Istria mean that there are no end of tourist sights to see in the area surrounding the hotel.  Our staff will also be pleased to assist you in seeing whatever you want.

Istria is an ancient land mass with signs of human life over a million years ago.

Since then, civilizations have come and gone but nearly all have left their mark in some way on the surrounding area.  Some interesting sights in the local area therefore include:

The Pula Amphitheatre
Hotel Amfiteatar

The city is best known for it’s Roman presence with the most notable landmark being the 1st century amphitheatre which ranks among the sixth largest in the world. Still used today for summer festivals the amphitheatre is a few minutes walk from our hotel.


Arch of Sergii and Temple of Rome and Augustus

Also built in the 1st century during the reign of Caesar Augustus this triumphal arch and temple are surprisingly well preserved considering their age.  Also nearby one can find the Twin Gates, the Gate of Hercules and the Augustan Forum where armies and politics would make their mark.

2nd Century Roman Theatres
Hotel Amfiteatar

Two smaller theatres have also survived the ravages of time with the city’s old quarter boasting Roman paving stones and yet lined with Medieval and Roman buildings

The ancient Byzantine monastery that later became a Benedictine Monastery

Now mostly destroyed, the floors and walls are still decorated with 6th century mosaics.  The Church of St Francis too reflects the monastic revolution that happened from enclosed monasteries to mendicant friars with the Franciscan monastery dating from the 13th century. 

St Nicholas Church
Hotel Amfiteatar
  • Orthodox Church of St Nicholas

Of course there are also some churches that survived the great schism between the East and the Western Catholic churches  and this 6th century church was partially rebuilt in the 10th century before being given to the Orthodox in the 16th century.

Museum of Istria

Of course perhaps the best overview of the evolution of the civilization of this region is recorded in the Museum of Istria which is also nearby.

In short there are great riches of tourist sights, history, art and culture in this area not to mention the natural beauty of the coastline and crystal blue waters.  Our staff will be pleased to offer you any assistance you require.
